You may have heard that earlier this week, a new strand of ransomware named Bad Rabbit appeared in Russia and the Ukraine and spread rapidly throughout the day.
Thankfully, nobody was affected in the UK, but how can you be sure that your firewall is effective and could stop new strains of ransomware from attacking your business?
We are now recommending our customers to install SonicWall’s Capture Advanced Threat Protection Service – a cloud-based service available with SonicWall firewalls. The system detects and can block advanced threats at the gateway until it has reached a verdict. This week, the SonicWall Capture Labs threat researchers investigated Bad Rabbit and the proficiency of the SonicWall Capture Advanced Threat Protection (ATP) sandboxing service against the previously unknown ransomware. Analysing three different Bad Rabbit samples, the multi-engine Capture ATP successfully stopped all three attacks.
